Czech Republic's beer fights to stay afloat amid Covid restrictions


Prague, Sep 29 (EFE/EPA).- (Camera: Martin Divisek)The Czech Republic’s world famous beer industry has for centuries been one of the country’s major cultural attractions, an industry that flourished through world wars, occupation by an invading army as well as decades of communism, all while barely losing a drop in sales. But all that has changed with the Covid-19 pandemic, which has severely dented Czech beer profits as restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the deadly disease, including the closure of bars and restaurants, have taken a heavy toll, brewers say.
